Usually the LOCK refers to locking the differentials for more traction in very bad road conditions, like in snow. The ESC stands for Electronic Slip Control which controls the amount of power given to each wheel when there are slippery road conditions. For example if 1 wheel is slipping on ice, the power is redirected to the other wheels that still have proper traction.
